Investment management ‘one analytics view’ for credit bonds and ESG risk factors

Across all asset management firms and activities, assessing and measuring environmental, social and governance (ESG) physical and transitional risk factors in portfolios has become a major focus. Clients, investment committees, regulators and stakeholders are demanding ESG risk factors be incorporated into investment decisions. This report considers investment portfolios and multi-asset overlays, stressing the risk-return analytical layer that today’s investment managers need to properly mitigate risk while maximising performance. It examines how firms must integrate ESG risk analytics with multiple other performance or risk analytics in credit bond portfolios to obtain a meaningful, quantitative and comprehensive investment view.
